Saban didn't go to the office in Miami today, which means he's either been kidnapped or hired away from Miami to Alabama. (Both equal possibilities in Miami.)
The numbers being thrown around by Alabama stagger the imagination: ten years, four million dollars a year, numbers the NCAA and anyone wondering about the thin, worn, rusty, and hole-ridden fence separating college football from professional sport. Saban, who we thought was born to coach 27 hour days in the miserable NFL, may be doing the unlikely and returning. (Since Alabama was pulling out all the stops, we shouldn't be surprised.)
We think Alabama could save some dough, though. In fact, you may want to help them out by indicating your interest with a fashion statement from the haute couture of the EDSBS Gift Shop.
UPDATE: Scott Moore of BamaMag.com is reporting Saban has accepted the job and is leaving the Dolphins, per Finebaum.
